Abstract
The sex- and age-specific incidence has been calculated for ankle fractures from the first part of the 1950s and compared with the 1980s, a 30-year interval. The fractures were also classified according to Lauge-Hansen. Altogether 1784 fractures were found. During that time interval ankle fractures had become more common, particularly those with extensive skeletal involvement, such as the stage IV supination-eversion fractures, which today have an incidence pattern more typical of a fragility fracture in elderly women.
